Based on the results of the survey, 3457265 acquired 4 blocks of claims (the "Mining Claims. The Mining Claims cover a total of over 25 linear kilometres of conductive material with similar geophysical signatures to the Ti-Nou graphite deposits within the Matawinie property").

In exchange for this technical support, 3457265 Canada inc. granted Nouveau Monde an exclusive and irrevocable option to acquire 100% interest in the Mining Claims under the following terms:
